Staying locally as family live nearby. We had mixed Sicilian starter, friends had octopus. Pasta dishes all excellent and local Sicilian white wine was amazing. Bill came to €89 for a great meal.

This restaurants offers a great seaview with terrasse & indoor seating. The service is quick and the Italian food is very good (from fire oven pizza to seafood). Affordable and tasty house white wine.

The picture says it all... Absolutely awful. We were recommended this place by a local bar, obviously some sort of agreement and commission going on as I can't imagine why any one would associate themselves with it! All 6 of us were very disappointed... 😞
